    When do the combs on SL Wayndotte, Partridge Couchin and Australorps begin to develop? My Girls are 15 days old and I do seem some longer beak development but nothing looking red yet. Just curious. [​IMG]

    I have 8 chicks of different varieties. Seems they started around 4-5 weeks some are growing much slower. One of my bantams comb is growing much faster than some standard size chickens that are a few weeks older. Know it's not specifically your breed, but maybe it will help give you a ball park.
